To make my basket, I cut strips of paper 1" wide x 12" long. The base of the basket takes 3 horizontal strips and 3 vertical strips woven together. Then I scored the sides so that I could fold the strips up to begin weaving my basket. I made 3 rows and then cut off the excess.
Along the top edge of the basket, I added a punched strip of blue paper made using the Martha Stewart loops border punch. Along the bottom edge of the basket, I added green grass using my Cricut Expression and the Paper Dolls Dressup cartridge.
My sentiment comes from the "Seeds Of Kindness" borders & centers set (JustRite) and diecut using Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities. The oval border comes from the "Joyful Hearts" borders & centers set (JustRite) and diecut using Spellbinders Ovals Nestabilities.
